by Carmen F. Cabrera Álvarez
Corpus Linguistics Conference Birmingham 2017 - Poster abstract
The world of video games in Spain can be highly influenced by the use of
anglicisms. The language and style used in some Spanish video game magazines
were analysed in this paper. A list of anglicisms was extracted and classified into
eight different categories (Brito Pérez, 2002) in order to discover which are the
preferred mechanisms to adapt these words into Spanish.
